Characters: Dan and Mab's Furry Adventures

DMFA has Loads and Loads of Characters, so it was only natural there'd be a character page here for it sooner or later.

Look out for spoilers, particularly if you go to the cast pages proper.

    Main Characters 
Daniel Ti'Fiona

Daniel Ti'Fiona is the brother of Alexsi and a retired adventurer. More or less the star of the comic.
  • Amazon Chaser: While Dan loves the ladies in general, he holds especial love for the Amazons. It's actually the first thing we get to know about him. Seems to run in the family, since his father's first wife and Alexsi's mother was a literal Amazon.
  • And Then Dan Was An Incubus: As an ex-adventurer, Dan had become accustomed to a mindset that most Creatures (particularly Cubi, apparently) were nothing more than soulless and brutal monsters that cause nothing but misery for others and he had a duty to vanquish them. So, imagine his shock when it turns out that he himself is a Cubi.
  • Badass Long Robe: He went around in a robe until the SAIA arc, and was quite touchy about people mistaking it for a dress. Wildy buys him a replacement in the Randomized arc.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Very protective of Alexsi, which she resents.
  • Bishōnen
  • Brown Note
  • Can't Act Perverted Toward a Love Interest: With Matilda.
  • Character Development: Ever since he ascertained that he is and fully became a full Cubi (thanks to his headwings finally appearing) he'd been in complete denial about it and blamed his newly realized Cubi nature on most of the problems in his life, allowing his prejudice against Creatures (Cubi, in particular) to form the presumptions over the motives of others (such as Abel and Fa'Lina which has caused most of the aforementioned problems) and hinder him from learning more of his Incubus abilities, potentially endangering those around him. Over the course of the comic, he has learned that not all Cubi are necessarily bad, has learned a bit more of his abilities and his clan's history, and has generally become more accepting of his Cubi heritage to the point that, as of Chapters 28-30, he is now a voluntary student of SAIA learning to better his abilities and becoming immersed in the world of Cubi, even representing Cyra's clan at an upcoming Cubi meeting hosted at SAIA.
  • Childhood Friends: With Wildy and Mab.
  • Chivalrous Pervert
  • Color-Coded Characters: Usually adorned in his signature red and gold colored robe.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: Something that's gotten him into all sorts of situations.
  • Fatal Flaw: Stupidity aside, a notable characteristic and flaw of Dan's is his rashness. It nearly got him killed on at least two occassions.
  • Handsome Lech
  • Hard Head
  • He's Got Legs: As both Wildy and Biggs can attest to.
  • Hyperspace Arsenal
  • I Know Mortal Kombat: He owes his agility at least in part to playing a lot of Dance Dance Revolution.
  • Idiot Hero: Not particularly proud of being one but at least acknowledges that he is one.
  • Interspecies Romance: Dan is a feline Incubus while Matilda is a taur Mythos.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Whenever his hair is let down which can be well seen here. Contributes greatly to the Dude Looks Like a Lady aspect of him.
  • Mood-Swinger: According to Abel, all Cubi are like this, due to being "creatures of emotion".
  • Official Couple: With Matilda.
  • One True Love: When Dan fully developed into an Incubus, he was worried that he'd never find true love, because as a Cubi, he could use mind reading, charms and shape shifting to seduce pretty much anyone, but it would all be fake. Matilda likes him for who he is and is immune to charms.
  • Retired Badass: It seems hard to believe, but when things get serious, Dan really is a skilled fighter.

Mab

A faerie whose favored/default form is a purple-furred cat, Mab lives in a pocket dimension in Dan's closet and is an integral part of the main cast.

    Supporting Characters 

Jyrras Gianna

A half kangaroo rat/kangaroo, short, shy, cute Jyrras is also a scientific genius with a sizable fortune due to his inventions and the influence of his mother, a highly respected lawyer.

Lorenda Soulstealer

A chubby but friendly Cow/Demon-Mare half-breed, Lorenda Soulstealer lives at Jyrras's mansion and looks out for him.

Pip

A small drake, Mab's apparent pet/best companion and bane of Dan's life.

Wildy San

A hot-blooded, hot-tempered, mischievous ferret with a major tomboyish streak. She and Dan have been friends since they were kids, and Dan's vendetta with Regina has something to do with her mother's death.

    Lost Lake Denizens 

Abel Dimitri Rewanz

A cat-based Incubus who was originally going to be Dan's roomate at the Succubus And Incubus Academy, he ended up being sent back to live at Lost Lake and be Dan's teacher instead.

Alexsi Ti'Fiona

Dan's elder half-sister (same father, different mothers), the owner of Lost Lake.

Fi

A "Warp-Aci", a kind of extradimensional familiar, that was originally supposed to disguise itself as Dan's letter to attend SAIA and then teleport him there. Through a complicated series of accidents involve Pip, he became Dan's instead.

Pyroduck

A mysterious figure who started visting the Lost Lake early in the series run and has recently moved into a relationship with Alexsi.

    Random Goers 

Aaryanna

A cat-based Succubus on a quest to find and kill Dan for killing her friend, Destania, she gave it up after falling in love with Merlitz. Extremely proud of being a Succubus, the relationship broke up during the SAIA arc and she went on to become a teacher at the Academy.

Aliyka

A Phoenix B, Aliyka somehow manages to be both an adventurer and a pacifist. An old friend of Dan's, who met her during his first encounter with Dark Phoenix.

The Basement Rats

A group of about four rats who live in the basement at Lost Lake. They became Dan's roomies when he was sent to live down there, but he and they get on well enough.

Biggs San

Wildy San's brother, an exile and leader of the Twinks.

Deebs (Deathbringer) and M.A.C.E

Artificial life-forms accidentally created by Jyrras, Deebs is a living wad of bubblegum that typically takes the shape of a tiny bunny and M.A.C.E is a powerful humanoid robot.

Dark Pegasus

Kria Soulstealer's brother (real name "Aliph Soulstealer"), creator of the whole school of necromancy, but disillusioned with that sort of magic, to the point he now specialises in creating "Death Guards", which are golems fueled by the harvested souls of the undead.
  • Back from the Dead: Multiple times!
  • Came Back Wrong: Kria and Devin note that he seems to get more and more... off... each time he is brought back to life. Specifically he's become more obsessed with conquering or destroying the one kingdom he wants.
  • Contractual Genre Blindness: Prefers the "classic" ways of villaining. This hasn't exactly helped him when facing Dan.
  • Dangerously Genre Savvy: However, his dislike for the undead has lead him to cast a killing spell in mid-sentence. His mid-sentence.
  • Driven by Envy: Aliph felt envious about how Kria's accomplishments got more notoriety while his successes often went unnoticed. This eventually drove him to rush his plan to create an undead army to conquer the kingdom of H-Ann, leading to his mistake that created the Undead and resulted in his first death.
  • Evil Overlord
  • Faux Affably Evil: He will kill people mid-sentence and smile at you politely while he rips your heart from your chest (which he almost succeeded to do to Dan)
  • My Greatest Failure: He hates being reminded that he originated the Undead.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over
  • You Are What You Hate: Possibly; the explanation of his Start of Darkness heavily implies that Aliph may be a unique form of undead himself.

Devin

An undead cat who Kria Soulstealer used to keep as a slave, when the Undead spontaneously "awoke" forty years ago, she took him in as a kind of adopted son. Secretly, his original self was an associate of Abel's, murdered shortly before he discovered who his father was.

Fa'Lina

Headmistress of SAIA, she started the academy during the Dragon-Cubi War to protect young cubi and help them to develop and learn.
  • Affably Evil: Self-confessed insane sadist, headmistress of SAIA and strongly implied to kill on a whim, and yet…
  • Beauty Mark: She has one below her right eye.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Almost always adorned in some shade of purple (most commonly magenta, fuchsia, or some combination of the colors, if not wearing outright violet).
  • Eccentric Mentor: She runs an academy for emotion-eating, mind-reading, shape-shifting, inherently magical Creatures. Acting weird comes with the territory. It's partially explained by the fact that being an "orphaned" Cubi Clan Leader tends to leave one a little loopy.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Got into a major fight with Destania when she suggested using Being children to demonstrate methods of torture on, and not only told Aniz how disgusted she was by his treatment of Abel, but only waited for him to stand up after the first punch she threw, which was for a completely different reason, just so she could get the best possible angle on the second punch.
  • Friend to All Children: She is noted on her cast page to have "a near insane love for children and infants" which is evidenced in the main comic by her taking in and watching over Abel after he was forced into SAIA, sparing an infant Pyroduck's life (in lieu of using the chance to exact some revenge on his father by killing Pyroduck) and giving him to the care of the Phoenix Oracle Da, and, as Fi notes, getting into a rather nasty fight with Destania when the latter wanted to use Being children and infants in her torture class.
  • Gag Boobs: She's the most buxom of all the characters in the series. Even other Cubi assume she's abusing her shapeshifting abilities to get them, though it's hard to say whether they're actually natural or not. She also lampshades the trope by noting that if they were any bigger, she'd need to reinforce her spine to handle them.
  • Grandma, What Massive Hotness You Have: As she sadly lampshades in the second half of Abel's story, nobody seems to ever notice.
  • Hope Springs Eternal: Her clan's signature emotion was Hope.
  • I Want Grandkids: The reason why she's so thrilled that Pyroduck is dating Alexsi.
  • Large And In Charge: According to Cyra, all Clan Leaders are naturally huge. She's just shapeshifted herself down. Which makes it a lot less unusual that she would know nearly everything going on at SAIA: theoretically, she could be as big as the academy itself.
  • Last Of Her Kind: Not in the obvious sense, since there are plenty of cubi around. But Fa'Lina's the last of her clan. And clan leaders can neither have more children nor convert others into their clan, so she always will be.
  • Mood-Swinger: Apparently, all Cubi are like this and it gets worse the more powerful they are. Fa'Lina is a very powerful Succubus.
  • Older Than They Look: As with many Cubi.
  • Omniscient Morality License: She claims to have this, but also freely admits to being an insane sadist because they're apparently a package deal.
  • Parental Substitute: To Abel and Pyroduck.
  • Really Nine Thousand Years Old
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: Another complicated one. She's a fantastic mother figure, but she's self-admittedly evil.
  • Sizeshifter: See Large And In Charge.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes
  • Team Mom: To her school. Her clan was originally known for this.
    • To the point of becoming something of a surrogate mother to Pyroduck and Abel.

Kria Soulstealer

Kria Soulstealer, notorious Demon-Mare, mass murderer, rampant cannibal, spreader of chaos. Also Lorenda's mother and not without her good side.

Matilda Kissriss

A tauric three-eyed cobra-like Mythos that Dan meets while accompanying Mab to buy a new home, she is quite attracted to Dan, and reassures him that it's a natural feeling, as her kind are immune to Charm Person effects.
  • Action Girl: She once ripped off her brother's arm and beat him into submission with it. Her brother, for reference, looks something like this.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Much like Abel, Matilda is currently receiving her own side story serving to flesh her out more.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: Her race operates on this, and it's why she says she ripped of her brother's arm and beat him with it. Females are expected to Stay in the Kitchen and defying the alpha male is a death sentence, the attack was to prove how strong she was so that her tribe would recognize her as a male, and would be exiled instead.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Aside from being part of a race that a) has temper issues, and b) can breathe fire, there's the fact that she was exiled for beating her brother into submission. By which we mean killing him, though he was already dead when she found him.
  • Broken Pedestal: Heshi's suicide dramatically changed her opinion of him. That said, she still cared enough to cover up the real reason for his death, and after she learned about depression much later, she started seeing him much more sympathetically.
  • Cute Monster Girl: The females of her race are smaller, smoother and more conventionally cute than their male counterparts, who are large, spiky and quite aggressive to anything that is not a female of their species and sometimes to those too.
  • Hidden Depths: While she really is a Nice Girl, one can't live for over 200 years without picking up a past.
  • I Just Want to Be Badass
  • Interspecies Romance: She's a taur Mythos while Dan is a feline Incubus.
  • Meaningful Name: As her backstory reveals, the name Matilda comes from Mahilta, a figure in their mythology who killed his brother - just as her former tribe believes that she killed hers.
  • Most Common Superpower: Art Evolution has been VERY kind to Matilda.
  • Nice Girl: She's sweet, kind, understanding, playful, a little silly, but otherwise just a very nice girl.
  • Official Couple: With Dan.
  • Playing with Fire: When she bothers breathing in, she breathes out fire.
  • Satellite Love Interest: Subverted. While the most appearances she's made in the main comic feature her alongside Dan, they tend characterize her further and we get to learn more about her. There's even two comic strips that feature her without Dan which hint that she may take up Adventuring. In fact, Amber especially states that she is creating Matilda's side story specifically so she wouldn't be known as "just the girlfriend of Dan".
  • Self-Made Woman: She's not exactly rich but she informs Dan that when she first arrived in Zinvth, she had quite little patience (and it can be presumed that she had next to nothing since her exile from her clan) but with developing that and hard work, she has managed to procure herself a shop of her own, sufficient amounts of money, and she is quite respected.
  • Tomboy: While she says she acted like a male to prove her worth, when her backstory is shown, her species normally have families of two sons and one daughter, while her father had one son and two daughters. This triad is apparently in their nature, and Matilda naturally gravitated towards being a second son rather than a daughter.
  • Unreliable Narrator: In her backstory, her narration doesn't always match up with what's going on on-panel, especially in regards to her brother. At first it seems to be because her opinion of him changed after he committed suicide, but at the end of her backstory she reveals that she was also offered a lot of money for her story on a talk show and played up certain aspects of it for the viewers.
  • Vertebrate with Extra Limbs: Two "arms" on an upraised torso, four "legs" on a quadrapedal lower body.
  • Why did it have to be Pancakes? : Has a phobia of Pancakes brought on from her being hospitalized after eating some for the first time.

Merlitz Meshaiko

An ex-adventurer who was let go from his group upon claiming to have met a dimension-travelling human, a skilled pyromancer. Had a short-lived romance with Aaryana, but broke things off with her and then left to become an adventurer again after the SAIA arc.

Regina Soulstealer

A Demon of the Soulstealer family, though apparently neither directly related to Kria or Dark Pegasus. Self-centered and vapid even by Demon standards. Dan and Wildy have a history with her; they've vowed to kill her.

    Real Worlders 

Amber

The Author Avatar of, well, Amber. Usually has to be persuaded to continue to write the comic.

Fluffy

A replacement of a former real-life character (A Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles doll). Was originally a character in an earlier comic that Amber did as a school project. Mainly acts as a foil with Amber, motivating her through various means.

    Those Without An Official Cast Page 

Aniz

Abel's father, who tricked Abel's mother into bearing his child by murdering her husband and assuming his form.

  • Abusive Parents: He successfully pretended to be a loving father with no hints of abuse for around two decades, but then he turned around and packed enough abuse for a lifetime into one day.
  • Consummate Liar: Comments on this at one point, when he says that he could make up a sob story about how all he wanted was to live the humble life and have a family... after all, he's spent so long living a lie; might as well throw a few more out there, right? Though as it turns out, the part about him wanting to have a family wasn't entirely a lie.
  • Jumping Off the Slippery Slope: Aniz used to be more carefree and cheerful, even managing to woo Destania of all people. Then his clan was slaughtered and things rapidly went downhill from there.
  • Last of His Kind: At fisrt; he was the sole survivor of the massacre that destroyed his clan who didn't kill himself or change clans afterwards. Needless to say it had a major effect on him. He later managed to father Abel and may have fathered others before his death.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning
  • Survivor Guilt: It's hinted that the psychic backlash of his entire clan being killed was his Start of Darkness
  • Villainous Breakdown: He seems smug, calmly sadistic and generally in-control at first... which abruptly collapses when Hennya seriously injures him and things stop going as planned.
    • We later learn this exact behavior is very typical of cubi, since their existing off emotions makes them often lose fights because they get way over-emotional way quickly

  • Nice Hat: Is it Ever!
  • Opt Out: Never comes to any meetings.
  • The Power of Love
